Bio


What have you been doing since the 2019 finals in September? I underwent surgery on my ankle to clean up all the chipped bone fragments and scare tissue with 3 metal plates to hold it all together so I’m looking forward to testing out my new and improved ankle.

We’re heading back to Waiblingen, Germany in July. What was something you remember from that event in 2019? I’m so stoked that the first stop is back in Germany I honestly had the best time last year and we travelled all over Germany with my Colony team mates. This time I think I will just try to maybe party a little less.

We head to Salt Lake City in September, home of Mike Aitken, Fuzzy Hall and Matt Beringer. What do you think the vibe will be like having these guys on deck during the event? I have never been to Salt Lake City before and I have not met any of those legends so it will be sick to finally have meet them. I’m really excited because growing up watching so many cool events on TV there it will be awesome to be a part of it this year.

For the first time Sydney, Australia is our host for the Vans BMX Pro Cup finals in October. Who are you backing for the series win this year? All I know is last year the crowed nearly ripped the stadium apart they were that rowdy so for it to be the final stop this year it’s going to be one hell of a show. It’s so hard to just pick one person as there are so many amazing riders in the Vans BMX Pro Cup but if I had to pick one person it would be Boyd Hilder, the dude is on fire.
